"When you get those rare moments of clarity, those flashes when the universe makes sense, you try desperately to hold on to them. They are the life boats for the darker times, when the vastness of it all, the incomprehensible nature of life is completely illusive. So the question becomes, or should have been all a long... What would you do if you knew you only had one day, or one week, or one month to live. What life boat would you grab on to? What secret would you tell? What band would you see? What person would you declare your love to? What wish would you fulfill? What exotic locale would you fly to for coffee? What book would you write?"

What is a Nurse?

A (Good) nurse is :

  • A nurse
  • a friend, to hold your hand
  • A psychologist, to help you through your strangest quirks and secrets
  • A mom, to tell you "no" and put things back in perspective.
  • a politician, so the hospital is a better place.
  • an advocate, so we make sure the doctors don't kill you.
  • a security guard, for when you start freaking out.
  • a mechanic, for fixing everything and anything that breaks on the floor.
  • a gymnast, for bending in really small spaces to plug in your IV.
  • an artist, you are our canvas.
  • a scientist, because what else do we use our critical thinking for?
  • A diagnostician, because sometimes we diagnose you before the doctors do.


A nurse is not:

  • a waiter, we are not employed to go and get you 4 sandwiches in 3 hours.
  • a hotel attendant, we are not going to put a mint on your pillows.
  • a punching bag, yeah-just try.
  • your drug dealer, because actually- we can't just give you unlimited amounts of narcotics.
  • a Marriage/family counselor- solve your own damn problems with your family, outside of the hospital.


C'mon fellow nurses out there- leave some comments with some more you can think of!
